The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission(EFCC) has seized a N2billion mansion reportedly owned by a former Comptroller-General of the Nigeria Customs Service(NCS), Abdullahi Dikko.The mansion, which is located at 1 Audu Ogbe Street, Jabi, Abuja, now has EFCC inscriptions painted in red, “EFCC, Keep off”. Dikko, who submitted himself for questioning at the EFCC head office in Abuja, for allegedly diverting N40bn from the coffers of the NCS, has remained in custody since Thursday.
In another development, Babajide Obanikoro, a son of a former Minister of State for Defence, Musiliu Obanikoro, has said he will not honour the invitation of the EFCC.Recall operatives of the anti-graft agency stormed Babajide’s home last week and seized the property located at 10, Mojisola Street, off Banana Island Road, Ikoyi, Lagos. Babajide, who is in the United States with his parents, siblings and other members of his family, wrote on Facebook that, “After they illegally searched my house, stole my car and other things, they now invite me four days later for an interview. I’m coming ooo (sic) wait.”
